Burnt Bookmobile


Twin Cities Anarchist Bookfair

The Burnt Bookmobile and friends will be tabling at this. We are somehow listed as one of the first bunch of participating vendors. Since and because of the NYC Anarchist Bookfair we’ve been accumulating a lot of new books and will surely have more by the time this comes around.

About the Twin Cities Anarchist Bookfair:

“The 11th and 12th of this September, anarchists will be having a Bookfair and Festival in the Twin Cities! Filled with radical distros, publishers, artists, music, crafters, workshops, skillshares, speakers and much more!

We will highlight Midwest anarchy and want to focus on this area, but we welcome radicals from far and wide to share with us.

The Bookfair portion of the festival will be held at the Bedlam Theatre in the West Bank community of Minneapolis on both the 11th & 12th of September. General Admission will be free with donations accepted. The Bedlam Theatre will be able to host the bulk of the activities, but some will be in other venues on the West Bank depending on the confirmed participation.

As much as we love selling things and being anarchists…

We’re tabling tomorrow at the New York Anarchist Book Fair with these fools.

When we get back we may not have many books left (hopefully), but that should mean we’ll be getting a lot of new things in and restocking old things. This might mean also that the general stock of what we do carry will be changing (most of it will remain the same). We are planning on doing a large Semiotext(e) order, getting new and old editions of End Notes, more books from Ardent Press, and other places.

From KGW:

“PORTLAND, Ore. — Someone vandalized the Portland Police union headquarters doing thousands of dollars in damage early Tuesday.

Spokesman Scott Westerman said just before 1 a.m., bricks and rocks were thrown through their windows, doing about $20,000 worth of damage to the outside of the building.

Eight people were arrested and three officers were injured Monday night when protesters clashed with police in downtown Portland in a rally against two recent officer-involved shootings.

Westerman said computers and other items were damaged inside the office.

No suspects have been named in the case.”

Bonanno may be charged with second robbery

From Denver ABC:

“Athens, 25 feb. – Alfredo Bonanno, the Italian anarchist over 70 years old imprisoned last October following an accusation of concourse in robbery of a bank in Trikala, is suspected of being the author of another robbery carried out last July at Argostoli, on the island of Cefalonia. Bonanno’s lawyers contest this accusation.

According to police sources cited by the media, Bonanno, with a false beard and wig, would have been recognised by one of the witnesses on the basis of a cctv video, while he robbed the Bank of Cyprus, pistol in hand, 6 July in Argostoli. The information has been partially confirmed to Ansa by a spokesman of the central police station, according to which “an old Italian is considered author of the robbery at Argostoli, which rendered 26 000 euros”. The spokesman did not give Bonanno’s name directly but implied that it was him.

Joanna Kurtovic, the Greek lawyer of the old Italian imprisoned in Korydallos (Athens), has expressed her doubts concerning the identification on the basis of a video and a critique of the way this accusation was made public. Bonanno, who suffers from diabetes and has cardio-respiratory problems, is one of the main theoreticians of anarcho-insurrectionnalism (sic). He was arrested at the beginning of October with the Greek anarchist Christos Stratigopoulos following the robbery of a bank in Trikala, for 47 000 euros. The Italian was later arrested in an hotel where the police found the proceeds of the robbery. Bonanno’s defence is that he received the bag from Stratigopoulos, without knowing what it contained. His version, the lawyer points out, has been confirmed by Stratigopoulos, who has taken full responsibility for the robbery. The judge, apparently due to Bonanno’s previous record, already having been sentenced in Italy, did not believe him and sent him to prison awaiting trial.”
